How does it work?   

Beginning with Module 1, read through each module carefully, and at your own pace, ensuring that you have understood and absorbed its content.

On completing a module,  you will attempt to answer the corresponding questionnaire for that module. 

Each questionnaire is presented in a multiple choice format; simply select the answer you believe is correct and click on the ‘Next’ button.
Your score for each questionnaire appears as soon as you have completed the last question. If you have attained the pass criteria of 70%, you can move on to the next module.
You have 1 attempt to pass each questionnaire; if you fail to reach 70% per questionnaire, you may still access and complete other parts of the program but will need to repeat the programme again (at an extra cost to you) in order to receive your course certificate.
To complete the programme, you must work through all the modules, as well as attain the pass criteria for that programme.  You may exit the programmes at any point and return later, when you log back in the programme, you will automatically be returned to the place you left off.
